I don't know anything about women's health but why can't you just keep spare pads in your purse/backpack/locker so you don't need to worry about it?

Since yo just started, your period is inconsistent. There isn't really any way for you to tell when it is going to stop and start unless you can tell by the cramps that you get. It is your call on what you want to do. If you are just spotting, you do not have to wear a huge pad. There are liners that are thiner and much more comfortable for times like these. It'll get better and if it doesn't you should let someone know so that you can go to the doctor and he/she can help you get a more regular period. Good luck

Your period will be sketchy the first ywar. Carry mimic ads in your purse.

It's hard to predict a first period; it can take a while for your cycle to regulate. For now, keep a stash of pads in your locker and/or bag at all times, just in case you need it. Also, if you are caught without any, try asking a friend or going to the guidance office/nurses office -most schools have someone who keeps a stash of pads for students in need. A normal menstrual period lasts about 5 days, but this varies woman to woman, and is harder to predict in the first year. If you want, you can get on birth control to regulate the timing of your period (it's perfectly safe -unless you have a contraindicating condition, it is more likely to improve your health than harm it).

You can usually tell when it's happening because of the pain, we have a uniform so I always keep some pads in the inside pocket of my blazer, if you feel it just go to the toilet, otherwise if you can't feel it it should probably be ok till you get home.
